New age composer/keyboardist Kurt Bestor began his career composing scores for films and productions like 1987's The Magdeburg Affair and the 1988 Winter Olympics, for which he won an Emmy. His first holiday album, Christmas, Vol. 1, was released in 1988; his first album of new age compositions, Seasons, appeared in 1989; and the '90s saw many holiday, soundtrack, and original projects from him, including Noel, The Ghosts of Dickens' Past, Sketches, and The Dance. Innovators followed in early 2000. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
